i got my nose pierced maybe 2 and a half weeks ago.. it's still a bit red. no bumps or...
tenderness. the hole feels like it has formed very well. but is the reddness a sign of infection?
It's not uncommon for healing piercings to be a bit red. If you don't have other signs of infection, it will gradually go away.
All of the piercings that I have had all were red for several weeks after the piercing. Use a combination of salt and water on it, applying with a Q-tip to help with healing. Don't use alcohol! I have heard it slows the healing process.
The signs of infection are: redness at the site, heat at the site, drainage, and inflammation. If your piercing is very very tender, hot, and draining a yellow fluid, it may be infected. Otherwise, redness is to be expected.
